For their exciting product line, outstanding quality, and unparalleled service to the collecting community, Rebelscum is proud to name Hasbro as Star Wars Licensee of the Year 2010.

For the seventh year in a row Rebelscum has given top honors to the one Star Wars licensee that stands out among its peers. This year's honors go to Hasbro based on the following criteria:

- Development of a high quality, collectible and desirable product line.
- Proven track record of listening to, and caring about what collectors think.
- A demonstrated understanding of the importance of working with on-line websites that serve the collecting community, of which Rebelscum.com is a part.
- Ability to make products available to collectors without resorting to the secondary market.

This is the third time that Hasbro has been honored for demonstrating a clear appreciation for both collectors and the collecting press. Accepting the award for the Star Wars team was Derryl DePriest, who appeared on the ForceCast's live recording on Day 1 of Celebration V. The award was later added to the Hasbro showcase for the world to see. Nice!

Previous winners:
Master Replicas (2004)
Gentle Giant Studios (2005)
Sideshow Collectibles (2006)
Hasbro (2007)
Hasbro (2008)
Sideshow Collectibles (2009)

On behalf of the entire Rebelscum staff and readership we congratulate Hasbro and wish them continued success in the years to come.

The traditional bottle of champagne has been broken on the bow of the latest addition the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series fleet and The Devastator has been officially launched. As a LEGO Star Wars fan and collector, how do you feel about this new UCS set?
Love it - definitely going to add one to my cart!
Wow - makes me wish I'd signed up to the VIP Rewards programme now!
It's great - now isn't the right time, but it's on my list!
I'm economising - will get it on clearance.
Not for me - too big/too expensive/too grey.
What is this LEGO you speak of?
